What you will learn:
- What is hair elasticity;
- The reasons why your hair might not have a balanced elasticity;
- How to do the hair elasticity test;
- The importance of elasticity for the hair;
Your hair’s elasticity determines its overall strength. Think of an elastic band. If you stretch it a lot and then let go, it will go back to its original shape. The elasticity of your hair is a measure of how much it can stretch without losing its original state. When elasticity is in perfect balance the hair is defined and strong.
Hair Elasticity Test
The results of the elasticity test are low, balanced, or high.
Pick one single strand from your head and spray some water on it (Hair has more stretch to it when it’s wet, but you can do this test on dry hair as well). Pull it slowly as much as you can-- not too aggressively-- and see what happens.

Why is it important to know about hair elasticity?
As mentioned before, how much your hair can stretch defines its level of strength. When hair has a good level of elasticity, the strands will be able to handle more pressure. Low elasticity will result in strands that are very delicate and have to be handled more carefully.
